ILM ends up building an off-the-shelf AMT model to supplement the main model.
That's the first I've heard of that. Do you have a source?
You can read about it on Memory Alpha, the article on the Constitution class model.

For instance, the following shots are the "smoothie" AMT model:

I may have missed a couple, but that's the vast majority. Basically, if ILM shot it, and the Enterprise was small, it was the model kit. It sold at auction a few years ago, still with the battle damage from Star Trek VI.
